Somehow, we all get up, get dressed, and get through the day. We each find a balance between too many variables – pleasure, habit, distraction, necessity, efficiency, desire, and so on. Some handle it by withdrawing into a place of privacy and silence, while others prefer conversation in the company of friends. Either way, routine and familiarity try to take over, and the day is filled with activities like working or waiting, surrounded by objects like lamps, hats, tools, or doors. Inevitably, rules get broken, and bits of behaviour are combined with bits of misbehaviour. In the case of this exhibition, we end up with bronze tree branches, ceramic crabs, and hacked computer games.
